“When Karin Rosenthal talks about the light in Greece, it’s
almost as mesmerizing as when she describes it in photographs: ‘On
some days, the water would be absolutely still and actually evaporate
into the air, so you’d have no horizon; the sky and water
would become one. Those were days that were perfect for my work.
You’d look into the light, and everything would be silver.
The water seemed to have a skin on it and would heave like a giant
work, as in her words, figure and landscape are united. Stones
and liquid take on the
flesh, while human forms become an outgrowth of their aqueous surroundings
and are transformed, through the tricks of light and craft, into
peninsulas, coastlines, islands."
